if that fight happens, I assume it happens in the US. Luke has turned down fights in Brazil in the past.

also Dominic Cruz tore the ACL in his right knee. sucks, he looked great in his one fight back.

Damn, I did not know that. That blows. I'm not even a huge fan but respect what he does when he fights, he looked REALLY good.

Barao getting straight back to a title shot seems pretty likely after both Cruz and Assuncao went out to injury. Assuncao broke his ankle training.

Just caught up on UFC 181. Hendricks gets screwed again. Which fight were those judges watching?

P.S. Pettis ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer, but dude can fight.

P.P.S. No chatter about Jones v Cormier tomorrow?

Am I the only one thinking Cormier has NO chance? Jones is going to keep him at distance and pick him apart. Cormier s boxing is mediocre.

As for best fight in UFC history? I mean I understand how a hype train works, but that is just wrong imo. I think Jones hurts him bad.

Likewise with Jury. Can he really beat Cerrone?

Great card though.

I wouldnt quite go as far as to say he has no chance, but I would say it is definitely Jones' fight to lose. I think the range will play a huge issue unless Cormier can slip under it and try to take him down and ground and pound him. Seeing as Jones didnt even take him pants off at the weigh in the weight cut must have been real smooth for him.

Been a big Cowboy fan since his WEC days so would really like to see him continue his winning ways. I dont think we have seen Jury face anyone like Cowboy yet so we either see he really is as good as he says he is, or Cerrone is just going to run him over.

Looking forward to the card though, should be a fun one!

Cormier prolly has a better chance than any of the other putzes they've put in front of Jones lately. Dude easily beat some big dudes at heavyweight.

I agree with the comment that Jonrs keeps Cormier at a distance and picks him apart.

Cormier does have that hungry Clubber Lang vibe though...

I thought Cormier had a decent chance until I recently re-watched some of his old fights. His striking isn't that impressive so if he can't keep him down I think Jones easily gets the win.

Cerrone should also get the win but I think that could be a really competitive fight, Jury has some very technical striking and good foot work while Cerrone prefers the muay thai style of standing right in front of his opponent which could lead to him taking some heavy strikes.

Jones HAS to have trained extensively landing a knee to the face of Cormier when he shoots.

As humans i'd take Cormier any day, but as fighters...

Anytime Lombard fights, I'm keen. 1st Round KO?
